Lending Activities

Hampshire Trust Bank has four areas of lending:

  • Personal specialist car finance – classic and sports cars
  • Asset Finance – hire purchase and leasing for business assets
  • Specialist property finance - buy to let and bridging finance to investors in commercial and residential property
  • Residential and commercial development finance – for new build development or refurbishment projects


Savings Guru Verdict

Hampshire Trust Bank offers a good range of savings products for both personal and business savers and consistently appear in our best buy tables for both.  It acquired Wesleyan Bank in February 2022, which should take the bank to over £2bn in size.  We expect to see Hampshire grow further as it establishes itself as a key specialist lending bank.
